Winter has arrived and it really means it. Bitterly cold overnight and the underfoot conditions were dire this morning, sheets of ice everywhere. A little bit of thawing and the sleet started at lunch time, but by two it had turned to proper snow and it's not stopped. Deputy Ed TB usually calls in on Thursday afternoon but very wisely decided to stay at home working remotely.
Local rumours suggest up to eight inches over night are possible even probable depending upon who you're talking to.
Tomorrow morning we may be a little short staffed!
